Article: Designers say goodbye to beige, hello to bright and bold colors


“Modern interior decorating color trends mix classy black, white and gray … tones with romantic pink and mysterious light purple colors,” reports the interior-design company Lushome in its assessment of 2016 color trends. One combination it identified was “spring-inspired yellow and green colors with neutral beige and white.”

More dramatic colors are also making inroads, according to Lushome’s assessment: “Deep orange colors … look gorgeous with contrasting black. Peaceful blue and green color combinations, red wine colors, bronze and comfortable brown colors can be mixed into modern interiors.”

Article: Feng shui experts share home decorating tips for the Year of the Monkey


In its “lucky” interior design tips for the coming lunar year, Lushome.com says eco-style is a hot trend. Think natural wood and indoor plants, earthy colours, and textiles and decorative fabrics made with natural fibres. “The monkey symbolizes curiosity and creative energy,” the site states. “It means you can experiment and implement fantastic ideas for your functional, comfortable and modern interior design and decorating projects.”

It also advises: “Avoid the numbers 2, 5 and 9 in-house design and home decorating, and use wood, soft fabrics, fur and metal textures to accentuate your office and home interiors. Instead of dark grey and black, use peaceful and noble shades like blue and gold, comfortable brown colours and greens for room decorating in 2016.”

Article: 2015 trends in paint and interior design. Styles, colors more personal and natural.


“Modern interior design ideas are elegant and sophisticated while showing more individuality, creativity and innovation”, says Ena Russ, decorating consultant at Lushome.com. She agrees with rundgren and says salvaged wood, stone, and metal are popular interior design materials, especially rustic wood, natural light wood, and exotic types of wood. She also says second hand, reuse and recycle ideas are huge sources of inspiration that can be mixed with contemporary furniture to add and individualistic and unique look to the modern interior design and decorating.”


I’m looking at design ideas, and find myself back at your site again and again because you’ve done it right:

– continuous articles, no ‘paging’ through
– bright designs and innovative ideas
– great articles
– not the same old cookie cutter stuff

Good job! Visiting your site is a joy; there are so many bad ones out there. Thanks.

While searching for some much-needed interior decor inspiration, I came across your website, and I instantaneously fell in love with it! I love how fresh and intuitive your content is, so congratulations on all the amazing work you’ve been doing so far! I particularly loved this piece on recycling wood doors and turning them into stunning vintage decors ( https://www.lushome.com/unique-vintage-furniture-recycling-wood-doors-30-modern-ideas/139529 )

Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you,
